1704 Marriage of Juan Flores Valdez and Francisca Javiera Abrego in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico

This is the marriage of my 7th great grandparents Juan Flores Valdez and Francisca Javiera Abrego whom got married in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico back in February 3, 1704. The parents of Juan are listed as Miguel Valdes and Margarita de Cepeda. The parents of Francisca Javiera are listed as captain Juan de Abrego and Thoedora Guaxardo. It is also interesting to note that Francisca is mentioned in the margin but in the document she is listed as Bernarda. I wonder if it is an error or she would go by both names. Researchers are using Francisca as her name. I am their descendant through their son Juan Valdez Abrego whom married Ana Maria Sendeja Llanas the daughter of Captain Francisco Sendeja Llanas and Juliana Aguirre. If you are also related to them please let me know in the comments section of this post.

    I don’t know. I am new to this. My great grandmother was Dolores Guajardo from Coahuila. I can’t even find her She was married to Felix DeAnda in 1800s. Perhaps you know something about them I had my DNA tested and found I’m part Sephardic Jew. I live in Texas. Carmen

  2. Omar Pena tarin

    I am related to priest Joseph Flores abrego he was the first priest in monclova, is my 4th grand uncle I think.
    I’m 20% Jewish but I can’t find any papers that certify that they were Jews, I have research more the Flores because they were an important family in Coahuila and Texas and there’s more information about them. I just want to know where my Sephardic blood line comes from. If you have any info would help. Thanks.
